We skied just the middle part of the fantom village. The snow depths were not too bad here but the snow was heavy where it hadn't been skied. Lack of snow under the trees. Much worse conditions compared to a couple of weeks ago.

On piste not bad above 1200m, poor below. The foehn really trashed the snow again and the lack of established base is really apparent.

Weather: Warm - strong southerly wind

Access: Clear
